I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Murder on a coffee plantation in Tahiti with a fun cast of characters. A great read for anyone who is a CSI fan.

Twenty Blue Devils is the story of the murder of the manager of the Paradise Coffee plantation in Tahiti that grows Blue Devil coffee, the most expensive in the world. This is also the story of a family with secrets. Gideon Oliver, a forensic expert, is called in to help solve the murder, but finds that he is unwelcome in "Paradise."

The beginning of the book really kept my attention and hooked me on the story, but I found that it got a bit boring as the book wore on. This is the second of Elkins' books that I've read, and I'd place this one as number 2 on the list so far, in order of appeal to me.

Great Book! Takes you to Hawaii, midst of a Coffee plantation and everything that follows from there is completely believable! Having lived there over 6 yrs I could completely see this mystery unfold!

And mystery it is... you won't guess the true culprit, and you won't see it coming!

If you are into the whole Gideon Oliver thing, this book will be good for you.

For me... this book was a little slow at times. The only thing that I wish was different was how the author went on and on and in depth about the coffee business. If you are interested in forensics and skeletons this will be a good book for you. One surprising twist at the end.
